Goal

 This note details the steps needed to install and setup DCC webgate.

Access Manager 11.1.2 supports the embedded credential collector (ECC) by default and also enables you to configure the latest Webgate to use as a detached credential collector (DCC, also known as an Authenticating Webgate).

The DCC is considered more secure than the default embedded credential collector (ECC). The centralized DCC presents the login page, collects user credentials (userID and password, for example), and sends these to the OAM Server using the back channel Oracle Access Protocol (OAP). Additional credentials can be requested using the DCC.

When OAM Server is configured to use the DCC, the ECC and its HTTP endpoints are disabled. The only HTTP communication is to the Oracle Access Management Console hosted by the WebLogic AdminServer in the domain where the OAM Server is deployed. Connectivity to the AdminServer can be controlled at the network level, for example, to disallow administration requests from outside the internal network.
